Ta da!  Here is the Chocolate Roses Clapotis all finished.  Sorry I don’t have any pics with modeling.  Maybe in the next couple of weeks now that the weather is warm.   I actually completed it about a month ago, and did some gentle blocking.  It really made the scarf “bloom” so to speak.yarn-004

This was a very easy knit.  I was a little nervous abou the dropped stitches, but held my mouth right and they turned out fine.  I also started another one in Wine Barrel from Miss Babs.  It is again Superwash Merino, purchased from Woolgirl, who is just awesome.  I don’t know if I just love Miss Babs yarn or just getting yarn from Woolgirl.  The yarn always comes wrapped in tissue with ribbon.  Just makes me feel so special.

Tis the Season….

Finished this very cute little snowman hat for my coworker’s son.  Took me a while to figure out the nose, but it was worth it.  Finished him with buttons from my button jar!  Mr. Pumpkin was the perfect model for the hat.  Is it too early to say “Let it snow, let it snow, let is snow?!”

Berroco DK

Berroco DK

I have dappled in washclothes.  I have played with scarves.  I have conquered the baby surprise jacket.  Thus, it was time for my first sweater.

My friend Eileen and I signed up together for a Sweater Class at our LYS. Now, Eileen has done sweaters and is quite an accomplished knitter.  Me, on the other hand, was not sure if I was ready.  With Eileen’s encouragement, I decided to do it.  A sweater that is, for my niece Kheli.  At least that was and still is the plan.

Eileen and I decided to knit the same sweater, except with different yarn.  At least we would have each other for support right?  We choose Berroco’s Caisey.  I am doing mine in Berroco’s Comfort DK in a pretty pink. 

Well, made it through the first 10 inches of the back panel.  Now I am in the pattern stitch.  It is giving me fits!  I have frogged, and reknit, only to have to frog again.  I have thrown in on the floor, called it a bunch of colorful names.  Does this help..No.  But it makes me feel better in my frustration.  My husband knows that when the pink blob comes out not to speak to me, much less ask me for anything.  It takes that much concentration on my part.

Will I finish it?  Will I keep my sanity?  Will I ever make it past the back panel?  Stay tuned….
